Titans inform star RB Derrick Henry he won’t be traded

In the days leading up to the trade deadline, plenty of speculation lay around star running back Derrick Henry’s future with the Tennessee Titans.

However, the chatter was put to rest after the Titans informed Henry that they don’t plan on trading the Pro Bowler, according to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter.

The 29-year-old is in the final year of his deal, making $6.4 million for the rest of the 2023 season. His remaining salary and impending free agency likely made it difficult for the Titans to engage in serious trade chatter.

There was speculation concerning the possibility of moving him to the Dallas Cowboys. However, the organization didn’t show any interest in acquiring him.

Titans could still move Henry before Monday’s trade deadline. Although there remains little interest due to his age, contract, and production.

Henry remains one of the league’s most productive running backs, ranking fifth with 526 rushing yards through Week 8. He’s coming off posting 101 rushing yards on 22 carries in the 28-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Henry has been the Titans’ offensive focal point for the last several years, posting north of 1,500 rushing yards in three out of the previous four seasons. That includes a career-best 2,027 rushing yards in 2020.

If the Titans retain him, he will continue to serve as the offensive centerpiece in their push toward the playoffs, especially with quarterback Ryan Tannehill dealing with an injury.

Rookie Will Levis performed well in his place, throwing four touchdown passes and 238 passing yards against the Falcons.
